Yellow-breasted chat, Eastern phoebe babies

We saw a couple a few days back, and dh heard it too, but I just heard my FOS tonight. The sound is so summer: deedeedeedeedeedeedeedeedee---chirp!

The phoebe eggs appear to have hatched - now instead of my scaring the female off every time I poke my head out the back door, I see the 2 adults busily flying to and from the nest.
